Back To The Future town hits London

Back To The Future is to be brought to life for a Secret Cinema event in London.

The fictional Californian town of Hill Valley, which features in the time-travelling films and the animated spin-off series, will be recreated at a secret location in the capital, transporting film fans back in time.

Described as the most epic and detailed production for a live cinema event to date, audiences will become citizens living between 1955 and 1985, with secret alleys and entrances in the town acting as a time machine, which will allow them to travel back and forth through the years like the film's stars Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd).

As in previous productions such as Dirty Dancing, Grease and Top Gun, Secret Cinema Presents Back To The Future will immerse audiences into the world of in the first half of the evening, followed by a screening of the classic 80s film alongside extra experiential surprise elements.

A battle of the bands contest will determine who will play on stage each night, as well as a secret headline high-profile band. The famous Enchantment Under The Sea prom dance will take place at an after party venue near the secret location.

Secret Cinema founder and artistic director Fabien Riggall said: "For Secret Cinema Presents Back To The Future, we will build an entire town, where audiences will live inside the world of Back To The Future. We will play heavily on the innocent dream-like Americana world of 1955 and the nostalgic pre-mobile phone world of 1985."

Secret Cinema Presents Back To The Future will take place in London between July 24 and August 10, with tickets going on sale on June 4 via the Secret Cinema website:
